Endodontics (Root Canal Treatment)
The tooth needs endodontic therapy when the pulp (soft tissue inside the tooth) is exposed, inflamed, or abscessed. Endodontic treatment is performed by removing the diseased pulp tissues, cleaning and sterilizing the root canal, and filling the canals with antibacterial material. A crown is then applied to the tooth a couple of weeks later to strengthen it and provide it with the support it needs to stay intact.
